programmes to watch

I didn't mean it wasn't good, it was, but I felt that all the way through they were trying to portray men as weak and stupid, and putting them down, I find that a lot with programmes these days, I'm all for women doing what they want, getting too jobs etc, but not at the expense of showing men up. 

Did anyone watch Gluck, brilliant, I have ordered the books.

You have to pay your licence  money anyway, unless you watch everything on catch up, whether you have Sky or not.

I picked my last lot at the weekend, but then they say don't pick the first lot either. I pick it for as long as there's enough stems on it, I will probably leave it now.

An old farmer I knew said not to pick it late as it was unlucky!

Couldn't watch daytime tv, all quiz shows, cookery or chat shows, ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Never put it on before 7.30 and rarely watch anything on BBC or ITV which is still also cookery and quiz shows

if we couldn't have Sky, we wouldn't have a television either. 

Just found a nice movie Chanel, playing all 40's and 50's films, so enjoying that at the moment. You do have to pick them out though, isn't it funny how what we loved back then seems like rubbish now๐Ÿ˜€

Hi Lynn. 

Thank you. I shall plant it tomorrow. We've named our original Rowan Twiggy, so we'll have to find another name for this one! Sad or what?!๐Ÿ˜„

See original post

 Call it Martin, on TV probably before your time, anyone remember Rowan and Martin. 

Exotic fruit to grow in greenhouse?

Posted: 29/08/2017 at 15:00

They used to grow pineapples in a cold frame with a brick wall behind, this had certain bricks removed and another container running along the back in which they filled with horse muck so the heat came through the bricks and heated the cold frame.  I don't suppose anyone would bother now as you can buy a big pineapple for £1.00 not worth the pong in the garden.๐Ÿ˜€
